The Japanese Oshogatsu  (New Year’s) holiday is one of the most important holidays observed and features many different special osechi ryori foods that come in an assortment of vibrant colors and hold auspicious meanings for the coming year.  These foods are often packed in square jubako containers and enjoyed on New Year’s day with family and friends. Food writer Sonoko Sakai has prepared a menu for her New Year’s Good Luck Foods workshop that will teach you how to make these foods and learn what each special dish symbolizes: forward movement, fertility, prosperity, health and longevity. This is the perfect opportunity for those looking to learn how to preserve Japanese cultural traditions which can be enjoyed year after year! This is a combination of hands-on and demonstration class. Please bring a container and kitchen knife and dish towel to the workshop.


New Year’s Good Luck Foods Workshop Menu:

  • Nishime: Chicken, root vegetables, snow peas and konnnyaku stew
  • Namasu:Daikon, carrot and dried persimmon salad
  • Tazukuri: Seasoned baby sardines
